The tale of Aslan Brewing Company began in the summer of 2012, sparked by a conversation over a pint of beer between friends Frank Trosset and Jack Lamb. With a brewer and a businessman ready to turn their dream into reality, they embarked on a journey to create a brewery that stood for more than just exceptional beer. They delved into research, refined their brewing skills, and with hands-on construction, brought Aslan Brewing Company to life in 2014. From its inception, Aslan set out to be distinctive, emphasizing organic ingredients, sustainability, and a deep connection with the community. The name Aslan, Turkish for lion, symbolizes their aspiration to lead the craft beer industry towards greater environmental consciousness and community engagement.

Aslan Brewing’s commitment to quality and sustainability soon led to meaningful expansions, including the opening of Aslan Depot in 2018 and Aslan Brewing Seattle in 2019. Each new venture brought Aslan closer to its community, offering spaces not just to savor exceptional beer but to engage in meaningful conversations. Despite leadership changes, with founders moving onto new ventures, Aslan continues to thrive under the guidance of dedicated stewards like Layne Carter. These transitions mark not an end but a new chapter in Aslan’s story, one that remains true to its roots while eagerly embracing the future. Aslan Brewing Company, through its remarkable journey from a simple idea to a pioneering force in the craft beer industry, embodies the spirit of innovation and the unyielding belief in a more sustainable and connected world.
